    When I plug in my MacBook to charge I hear from the power brick a small buzzing noise is that normal?

    I only hear the sound when I put power brick close to my ear.

    my MacBook is 6 months old only

    It's probably fine, but if it bothers you I'd take it in to Apple.

    On a side note, your posts are still extremely difficult to read. It would really help if you would take the time to use punctuation, as a courtesy for the people here who are offering their help.

    Is it gone when the MacBook is done charging? You just might be hearing it when it's charging since it's transforming the AC power from the outlet to usable DC charging power.

    Hey I've got the exact same problem as you man, I've only had my macbook for about a year and only just now noticed the noises - its only audible when its in a quiet room, and is louder when you scroll for me.

    Did Apple say anything was wrong with ur charger, or do you think all/some chargers do this and its not a cause for concern?

    If you still hear that faint sound sitting at ur desk in a quiet room, do you think that's still normal? Sorry, I just want to make sure

    Thats just normal humming coming from the step-down transformer inside the brick. All AC/DC adapters do this to some degree some are just more audible than others
